Michael Angarano has signed on and Jesse Eisenberg is in negotiations to star in Ceremony, a comedy from NALA Films on which Max Winkler is making his feature directorial debut. The Hollywood Reporter says Jason Reitman and Daniel Dubiecki are executive producing.
The comedy follows a young man (Eisenberg) who falls hard for an older woman about to be married. The infatuation prompts him to take along his unwitting friend (Angarano) to a beach town in an effort to break up the wedding. Upon arriving, the young men quickly realize just how out of place they are among the stately British groom-to-be and his guests.
Winkler wrote the script. Production is due to start this fall.
